According to China Press, the Kuala Lumpur Fire Department received a distress call at 10.50am and dispatched a team of firefighters to Tower B of the condominium. Based on their observation, the fire was started from the middle room of the unit and luckily, it was put out before it managed to spread to the other areas in the unit. At the moment, the authorities are still looking into the cause of the fire.

Following the incident, one of the neighbours living in the same condominium took to Facebook to remind members of the public to turn off the switch after they’re done blowing their hair. It was believed that the fire was started by the device after a short circuit had taken place and it so happened that the hairdryer was placed on the bed. As such, the mattress was turned into ash, revealing the metal spring and bed frame. Thankfully, no one was injured in the fire.
